Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters!


Baby boy and I have been working at putting sister joists in. The existing joists are way out of level. Some are as much as 1.125″ too low. Yikes! I suppose that’s what happens when you have 1,000 lbs of water + people on the floor…

Basically the procedure is to grab the level, place a 2×6 joist next to an existing joist (with a little construction adhesive), check for level against the other joists, and nail the bugger in. So far nothing is more than 1/8″ out of level, and no one has fallen into the dining room 😛
